Kailangan Tgalog

Tatlong araw na palaging pagkain labas ang aming kinakain mag-asawa. Bakit? ...dahil may mga bisita kami ngayong inaalagaan, labing dalawa silang lahat at sila ay mga taga Inglatera. Ang gusto nilang pagkain ay panay tinapay, prutas, pasta at pizza. Hinde ako gaanong makarelate kasi ang gusto ko ay pagkaing Pilipino. Nung una ay natuwa ako kasi makakain din kami ng mga pagkain na ganun... pero ngayon ay di na ako masyadong natutuwa dahil na mimiss ko na ang pagkain ko. hay! labin-apat na araw sila magtatagal dito, kaya ganun din kami ng asawa ko.
Sana makayanan ko ito!

No time to cook :(

I have been busy these past few days and cooking is an impossible thing. We are most eating outside or more on food chains because we have visitors and we need to accompany them wherever.
Hubby was actually craving on home cooked food.  Last night hubby and I had dinner at Jollibee, lunch a cash and carry mall food court then jollibee again tonight with our missionaries guest. Ooh... goodness... so much fats intake, coz after jollibee we went to  Starbucks for coffee. I'm feel like running 5k. Then tomorrow  is another same day again. Through all of this I am still thankful I've got this opportunity to be with these twelve beautiful young people.
No more cooking today till' next week!

Dinner Fellowship

Three English and one American friend came over to our house for dinner tonight. They asked for a Filipino dish, so we made pork sinigang and baked tilapia for them.
Just don't know though if they have enjoyed the food :) knowing it's never they're kind of food!

Baked tilapia recipe:
3pcs of tilapia fish
2 lemon or 6 kalamansi
1 clove of garlic

marinate the fish with salt, pepper, garlic and lemon/kalamansi for five minutes. Pre-heat the oven for 2 minutes. Baked the fish for 20 minutes.
Notes: 5 minutes before the fish is done put the butter.

Our camera has no battery, hubby is contemplating of buying a new rechargeable battery or selling our camera and buy a new one.
I really would like to have a camera for my food blogging. As you have noticed I don't have new pictures to post in here because I don't have any.
I'm sad :( though,  I don't want to give up our camera since it was a gift from a dear couple friend, but hubby is decided already.
Hope we'll get one soon!
happy tuesday everyone!

In pursuit of a Coriander

Last night hubby and I went from one supermarket to the other looking for a coriander but did not find any. So out of my curiosity I went to the internet and googled it. Then to my surprised, I found out that I knew what it is just in different name "Cilantro" goodness! name is really important it varies from place to place.

"Organic coriander powder generally known as "Dhania" is cultivated for centauries. Coriander is considered both an herb and a spice since both its leaves and seeds are used as seasoning condiment. Organic coriander was originally introduced from Asia, Egyptians and then to the Europeans, as an aromatic stimulant and spice. Great Ayurvedic physicians, Hippocrates and other Greek physicians in digestive formularies employed it. Fresh coriander leaves are more commonly known as cilantro and bear a strong resemblance to Italian flat leaf parsley since they belong to the same plant family Umbelliferae."

This is a coriander or cilantro

Business is slowly rolling!

A food business is both exciting and tiring. It is exciting especially when people buy your product... it is tiring on the other hand because after you cook you have to clean your mess.
I am looking forward though that one day our home based food business will grow big and would be seen in malls. We'll I am dreaming that people will also be in a long que  waiting to be serve just like mcdonalds.
whew! It's free to dream, and that's what I am doing just right now :)
God bless everyone!
